Evolving in 1992 after a merger by the traditional Deutsche Steinzeug Cremer & Breuer AG and AGROB Wessel Servais AG companies, the AGROB BUCHTAL tile range picks up on a history which dates far back into the 18th century. Architects all over the world appreciate the freedom, of design offered by the enormous variety of ceramic wall and tile products for a wide variety of applications - supplemented by individual customized products. Comprehensive consulting and relief from routine tasks has been provided by the AGROB BUCHTAL Architects' Service for more than six decades.
The company's expertise is reflected in the high quality of AGROB BUCHTAL brand tiles and is based on solid know-how as well as marketable innovations. Giving rise to quality ceramics made in Germany, which save money over the long term thanks to the cleaning-friendly HT-coating.
